snow sculptures | photographer racine, wi


so we decided to venture out of our house and into this bitter cold weather we are having to check out a snow sculpture competition downtown.  WOW, these guys are some true artists.  not only does their work look amazing, they do this in 15 degree not my thang, but I was in awe of how intricate these were and how much they paid attention to the details.  here are a few.

they take an idea ~ some in form of a sketch, some a model and some from a photo.

here is what their canvas looks like

and this is the end result

look at the detail

j had a good time just running around (had to include a pic of him)

towards the end of the night he decided to hang out on, what he thinks is his new chair, enjoying the Christmas tree

someone got jealous and wanted their picture taken as well

have a great week everyone.

chevelle | racine, wi photographer


so i'm not a huge concert goer but my brother is friends with the band Chevelle so I've gotten out to a couple of concerts of theirs, which by the way are a great live band.  this week they were in milwaukee so i went out to the concert and brought my camera.  i had an all access pass so i was able to get up front for the first 2 songs with the press to get some great shots.  i had a great time shooting at this concert and would love to do it again.  here are a few of shots that i got (had a hard time choosing ~ i'll probably do another post of some more later).  leave a comment letting me know what you guys think!


one of the opening bands was Finger Eleven, here are a couple of shots of them.

black and white wednesday (& WW) | photo challenge


this is my black and white wednesday entry for a photo challenge over at the long road to china.  for my wordless wednesday followers ~ consider this post my ww as well!!

i did some playing around with the background to get an even more textured look.  I also cropped to give the shot a bit more unique look.  other than that i didn't do too much to it from the SOOC (other then basic tweaks).



thanks for stopping by.  if you like, dislike, or just are not sure leave me a comment ~ love to read what everyone thinks!  also if you like my work, why not go down to the bottom of the page and follow me!  happy hump day!

the s family | racine family photographer


so, i've been a little slow on getting to my edits lately.  i blame that on my sons 2nd birthday which was on friday.  so i'm just now getting around to posting a sneak peek from a session I had last weekend.  i had a great time photographing the s family.  little c is adorable.  john and kristine thank you for letting me capture your family.  hope you like your peek!

Thanks for stopping by...
